    President Barack Obama will return to New England today to attend an interfaith service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston today.

    President Obama, Boston Mayor Tom Menino, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, and several religious leaders will give reflections and deliver readings during the service, which begins at 11 a.m.

    The presidential visit comes the day after Obama declared an emergency in Massachusetts, leading the way to federal aid for the state in response to the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
